Out of Horizon is the first offering from Icelandic act Bang Gang’s first album release in over 7 years. It’s an effortlessly cool breath of fresh air - the one you can see on a cold winter’s morning. It’s Midlake transported to world of synthpop and given a remit to inspire universal love. It’s a road-trip, staring into the sun as it rises. It’s just music, I know, but I like it.
In case you’re wondering who Bang Gang is, you might know Icelandic composer Bardi Johannsson from his album Something Wrong or his Starwalker project (with Jean-Benoit Dunckel from French sexy boys of electronica, Air). Johannsson also performs as Lady & Bird, a side-project for the androgynous duo alongside artist Keren Ann.
Full details of the album are still being kept under wraps, but expect a release sometime in Spring 2015
